Starting November 12, 2019, Disney will offer a bundle of its three streaming services Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99 per month (via The Verge).
The Disney Bundle
On the launch day of Disney+, Disney will also offer a bundle of its three streaming services for $12.99 per month, which is cheaper than or on par with services like Amazon, HBO, and Netflix.
At launch, the bundle will be available in the US. The company is not yet ready to comment on its plans for the international launch other than saying that Disney+ and Hulu will be available internationally in the near future.
- "That $12.99 bundle offers consumers tremendous volume, trememdous quality, and tremendous variety for a good price," said Bob Iger, CEO, The Walt Disney Company.
The three streaming services will also be available individually. Disney+ will cost $7 per month, Hulu $6 (with ads), and ESPN+ $5. That is $18 per month so taking all three as part of a bundle will save you $5 per month.

Disney+ will include content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Fox. For more details see this article.
